So tomorrow (Monday 1st June) marks quite a significant milestone as some key lockdown measures will begin to be relaxed and for many of us this may have meant some difficult decisions being made. Some of you may be preparing to send your children back to school tomorrow whilst others may have decided that is not right yet for their family. Some of you may be planning garden meetups with friends and family and some of you may feel this is too soon for you. Everyone has their own individual stories and unique situations so, not that I have any authority to give advice, but if you'll indulge me my opinion I think it boils down to 3 simple things: Be kind, don't judge others and do what's right for you and your family!

Often, myself included, we are too quick to criticise and it feels so easy to judge others but let's try to take a pause before we do that. We may think we have all the information but we can never truly know what is going on for others, you cannot know someone's full situation and what is right for one person may not be right for another.

If you're anything like me, the beginning of these relaxing of measures fills you with mixed emotions: on one hand you're so excited to be able to meet up with friends and family and begin to have more human connection (albeit at a 2m distance of course!) but on the other hand you're filled with doubt and question whether it is the right time to make changes for your family. All I can say is that I think it's ok to feel any of these emotions (and fluctuate wildly between them as well!) This is a completely new situation to us all and we are learning as we go. By all means try to make informed decisions but, in my personal experience, no good comes from endless scrolling of various different 'expert opinions' - at the end of the day, I say trust your gut and make whatever decisions feel right for you in that moment.

Sending big virtual hugs to any kids, teachers and other school staff heading back to the classrooms tomorrow and even bigger hugs to anyone still struggling to make their decision!
